Hi

 

Not entirely sure what you're referring to, can you go into greater detail please.

Seems only MP4 & OGG files are supported.

 

Support for YouTube videos, as backgrounds, would be great.

Can you host the video file on Amazon S3?

In regards to YouTube videos, I will add this to our tracker as a feature request.

 

For the hosting question, I am not sure how Amazon S3 works, is that a CDN? Can you not just upload your video to the service and then copy and paste the URL into the field ?

Thank you, Danny.

 

Sorry for the questions, but I did not see clear instructions anywhere.

 

Yes, it will work for me, since I host on WPEngine.

For people with shared hosting, it is likely to be a disaster.

 

Bandwidth issues will be a major problem, and possibly the speed.

 

By using YouTube, the bandwidth issue would go away. 

 

I think S3 will work though.

In my opinion, no one should be using shared hosting especially if they wish to use videos for backgrounds. 

 

Also, have you tried adding the YouTube URL into the video field ?

      Hello there,
      We are still using DMS 2 and were wondering if it was at all compatible with slider revolution. (https://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380). Our issue is that the default revslider for DMS clips the top and sides of videos when made responsive. As the video is made smaller or larger the bottom of it tends to be cut off, or the sides are. We noticed slider revolution was 100% responsive, but have had numerous issues even getting it to display in DMS 2. We have tried using the shortcode, and various php scripts to no avail. Our last attempt was to try and load it with header scripts, but at this point we seem to be further away than ever. 
      This leads me to a few questions:
      1. Is Slider Revolution even compatible with DMS2?
      2. Is there a way we can get 100% responsive video in DMS 2 with zero clipping? (tonyrobbins.com is another good example of the effect we are trying to achieve.)
      3. If Slider Revolution is compatible, how do we go about adding it in?
       
      Thank you for any help.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hi Guys, 
      I just went live with this site. http://bikenet.org/
      I can see the video background in Firefox, Chrome and IE on my computer as well as my husband's computer and my phone. So I am not able to see any problem. 
      But, my client says she cannot see the video background in Chrome?? Any ideas? 
      Let me know. Thanks!

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?
